Course Detail

eRider™ Basic is a course for novice riders with four to six hours of online classroom instruction and eight hours of range (on-cycle) instruction. The course takes place over two days and builds fundamental street-riding skills and strategies. Classroom is done at home on the computer. Courses with traditional classroom are also available. Training motorcycles 125-250 cc and DOT helmets are provided. For individuals with no riding experience who are comfortable using a computer, this is the recommended course.

The online classroom is highly interactive, using video and other features to address risk management, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments and special riding situations like carrying passengers and group riding. Participants complete online Chapters 1 and 2 (riding gear and motorcycle controls) before the first riding session. Students who have not completed Chapters 1 and 2 may be dismissed from class.

Practice riding starts with basic skills, such as getting underway, turning, shifting and stopping, then moves on to the more advanced street skills of emergency braking, cornering and swerving.

Completion Requirements
Taking an approved course is the first step toward earning a motorcycle endorsement. Before applying for an endorsement at DMV, make sure you understand the Oregon DMV licensing process.

OUT-OF-STATE RESIDENTS  Washington accepts TEAM OREGON BRT for a motorcycle endorsement, but not IRT or eRider™ courses. Contact the licensing agency in your home state to verify which courses are accepted before signing up for a TEAM OREGON course.

Completion cards are awarded to graduates of eRider™ Basic. To receive a completion card, you must complete all classroom activities (Chapters 1-6) and on-cycle riding sessions, pass the online quizzes and pass an on-cycle skill test. Students have up to 60 days after the riding sessions begin to complete the online classroom.

DMV waives the on-cycle skill test for graduates who possess a valid completion card, but riders must pass the DMV knowledge test to complete the licensing process. You can study for the DMV test here. Riders who successfully complete the course are eligible for insurance discounts under Oregon law.
